Summary, etc.: Bram Stoker penned his gothic horror Dracula and popularized the vampire myth, but evidence now suggests those myths originating in England, not Eastern Europe. Oxford professor John Blair follows clues that offer insight into the formation of the myths. The cases hint at a belief that the dead could rise and bring fear to the living, that predates Eastern European lore and forcing a reexamination of the modern vampire legend.
